Summer Reading Program 2021
New Location in 2021!
Altoona Elementary School

With the exception of the summer of 2020 when it was cancelled due to COVID-19, this program has been a regular part of our summers since 2011 "because when children don't read enough in the summer, they lose many skills they learned during the school year." This is called the "summer slide." Books in the Park is one way that we are working to combat the summer slide, by providing free books!

NEW LOCATION! This year, we have moved the event from 10th Street Park to home base! To coincide with our summer programs, the two Thursday sessions will be held at Altoona Elementary, 157 Bartlett Avenue.

Our thanks to the Altoona Elementary PTO for supporting this program!

**All applicable safety measures in place at the time of these events, will be followed.**
